Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge 34 - Recipe Challenge

Hi!  This week's Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge  is

A Recipe - Include 2 ribbons, flower /brad

Here's my card

I used tulle and lace for my ribbon.  OMG does lace count as ribbon!?!?  Fingers crossed it does (and if it doesn't, you'll forgive me!)

The image is a Kenny K digi (love this , and I have coloured her with copics... I'm still not 100% happy with how I colour hair, but I'm getting there (I think!!).  As ever the photo does not do this card justice!!

I used a lacey circles nestie and my Tim Holtz brick wall embossing folder.  As I don't (yet!) have a circle Nestie I used a 3" circle punch which fitted just fine :-)  I really like how she looks against the chocolate circle!

I chose to use a flat flower for a change rather than the roses that seem to make an appearance on everything I do at the moment :-D

The brad in the centre of the flower is by Dovecraft - I thought the Wicked that is printed on the brad was appropriate for this card :-)

The panel is bordered with a MS border punch in tan Bazzill, and I have sewn round this and the main card with brown thread.  The sentiment and die are by Whimsey Stamps, and I have distressed it with Antique Linen, Weathered Wood and Bundled Sage Distress Inks.  I love these papers by Basic Grey - odd how after a couple of years of being a bit indifferent to their papers, I'm now getting into them!!  Go figure - maybe because I'm making far more cards than scrapbook pages these days, so the bold print is less scary, or maybe I'm becoming more brave!!  Either way, this paper is Archaic Obsolescent and I really love the soft colours

A few gems finished my card off, hope you like it!

Looking forward to seeing your cards, which you can link to the main blog here

Thanks for stopping by, Sue xx
